Release date: 2022/11/29


A "new metal textbook" that overlooks metal as "the latest cutting-edge music"!!
Jazz, post-rock, hip-hop and electronic music,
Broad base that greedily incorporates various genres
Extreme metal that has pursued "intensity" and "extremeness" to the limit
And a lot of the latest popular music influenced by metal in various ways

Written by: Sakino Seike, Kyoki Murata, Ryohei Wakita, Tsuya-chan, Hitomi Nishiyama, Mirai Kawashima, Chiaki Fujitani, Yuta Umegaya
